    ...Though short, these emails tell us three key things:

    First, Lois Lerner unquestionably misled the public when she stated in her initial, May 10, 2013, apology for IRS targeting that the scandal centered around “our line people in Cincinnati.” In reality, this was and is a Washington scandal, with senior IRS officials at the epicenter.

    ...Second, key leaders at the IRS are highly partisan. Lerner’s May statement contains this howler: “They didn’t do this because of any political bias. They did this because they were working together.”

    ...Third, it’s deeply discouraging to read the extent of Lerner’s hostility to the First Amendment. The Citizen’s United ruling, which she so obviously disdained, significantly expanded free speech rights and further protected political speech from government control – an evident nightmare for a partisan bureaucrat like Lerner.

    The evidence has long ago mounted beyond the level of probable cause. Where are the investigators who should be calling this scandal -- as well as the Benghazi fiasco and the NSA criminal behavior -- into the hearing rooms to begin punishing the guilty?
